Calendar and Student Life
All International Studies students are expected to come to Mountain View Academy with a sincere desire to learn the English language. Grades will be issued on a regular basis during the quarter. If at the close of any grading period the student has failing grades and a GPA that is significantly below average, the student will be allowed to continue in school on a probationary basis.
At the next grade report the student’s grades are reviewed to determine if improvement has been made. If faculty determine sufficient progress and improvement has been made, the student will continue in the program. Otherwise he/she may be asked to withdraw with no refund of tuition!
Testing and placement will be conducted for each student upon enrollment during the school year. Testing will be conducted throughout the year to determine grade placement. New students will be required to take the TOEFL test before registration to determine grade placement. SLEP test will be administered by our International Studies Director.
The total score on the SLEP is derived from scores on the two sections of the test. The section scores are used to advise students about their options and place them in the appropriate courses.
Come join other International students in experiencing cultural diversity through various yearly activities: International Week, Moon Festival celebration, Christmas parties and Chinese New Year fundraisers. Here at MVA we welcome all international students as members of our family and our International Club is one way to get involved!
